First They Came For Our Runny Eggs...
It's really amazing the crap they come up with in Trentoon. Once again, instead of actually cutting spending, which is what you and I, slovenly normal taxpayer citizen types that we are, do when the budget gets a little tight, our Beloved Betters in Trentoon are floating the idea of a new tax.
WINDSOR, N.J. (CBS) ― The sputtering economy has caused an increase in prices of many staples including gasoline, rice, ice cream, even beer. Now some lawmakers in New Jersey are considering taking food taxes a step further and install a proverbial "sin" tax on fast food.
...The thought of taxing a Big Mac or a Wendy's burger came up at a New Jersey Hospital Association meeting where Gov. Jon S. Corzine was asked if it could be an option to help fund struggling hospitals. At the meeting, he reportedly called it a "constructive suggestion."
Here's a "constructive suggestion" Speed Racer: cut spending by 10% across the board. Every Department. No exceptions. An immediate freeze on all hiring.
Everyone in Trentoon needs to go. There may be a few babies that get tossed with the bathwater, but when the water is so fetid, youse gots to do what youse gots to do.

Jesus H. Christ! We already pay 7% tax on restaurant meals. Don't hold your breath waiting for the governmental elite to impose an additional tax on sushi.

Ice cream is a staple?
